An Event Recap

blouse: Sandro, blazer: Alexander Wang, pants: Rebecca Minkoff, shoes: Miu Miu

Yes, those are python patches on my knees. This gives me a great roller blade gear idea but let me flesh it out. Last week Vogue and Coach held an event at the 57th Street store whereby I sandwiched myself among the two brands and formally dubbed myself co-host. Shopping events like this one always equal big fat ball of fun, if only because of the two girls that stand alongside my alias and self in the photo above. Glad someone took that turband tutorial seriously. And in other news that rocks: Zara takes one for the team, ignores the fact that it will indubitably get sued for sartorial plagiarism and voila, produces Celine’s most coveted pre-Spring blazer. See bowler hat lady at left. And Emily down south. But back to the event, while I can appreciate and enjoy Coach’s effort to re-brand its ladies department and bring the simplicity of seventies chic back in a resurgence of the Coach Classics, the real wins here hail from the mens side. Leather bound notebooks make great gifts for the writers in your lives, green structured briefcases are the new totes and leather portfolios double as the most sensible run for Celine’s version. And when I say that, I see in my head the notorious street style savvy clutches that were alongside every important wrist last fashion week. You with me? Maybe it’s just not Phoebe’s day. Maybe I’m jumping the gun.

Here I call this one: alpha vs beta, iPhone wins. All in all, a party well partied. And also, hey Emily.

    I love your blog in general and think you are a hilarious writer!! I truly hate to do this… BUT, if those python patches are indeed made from real python skin then I must shine a light on an awfuI l truth. First of all, most snake skin is poached illegally. Ok, so lots of things are illegal and lots of people break laws. However this illegal poaching leads to an awful treatment of snakes. Once the snakes are caught, their heads are nailed to a tree trunk, then they are pumped full of water until they are on the brink of bursting, finally they are skinned alive and then left to die naked and hanging from a tree for other animals to eat (after they probably laugh at the poor naked bugger). Doesn't that disgust you?!? I promise I'm not some crazy activist.. I don't even like snakes that much, but ever since I heard this I cannot bear to buy or wear snake skin. You might be thinking that what I just told you is a load of hooey.. I probably would. But a friend of mine works for an environmental organisation, and when she heard this she had to share it with any potential snake skin wearers. And now I feel it is my duty to pass on this awful, bubble-bursting truth. Thanks for reading that psycho rant. Keep up the fantastic work!! (And do try and avoid the snake skin..)

    ^^ Same ranter here..
    Just wanted to add that I realise you are not in control of the poachers or even designers actions, and I did not mean to blame you in anyway. I just hope that we can all use our consumer power to change the market for the benefit of us and the world! Wooo!
